I posted this at another BB site and am going to post it here so hopefully we can build a big, decent list of ideas. Read below...
I was reading on another site that the Storm 3 is already in testing around the RIM HQs down the road from me in Waterloo.
They listed a few rumored specs and this got me thinking...RIM wanted the Torch to be the "iPhone Killer" which it obviously wasn't. Although I, and probably every other BB junky LOVES the Torch, it clearly didn't perform as well as expected sales wise.
I thought I'd start a thread with some features that we would like to see on the Storm 3 that could make it the real iPhone Killer.
Here are my ideas:
Front facing camera.
I think if they could incorporate this into their design and "copied" Apple's "Face Time" feature it could be AWESOME!!! Especially if you could video chat with BBM contacts!!!! I think that would KILL Apple's Face Time edge.
A Camera with at LEAST 8 MP
Although a phone is a phone, I would love to have an incredible digital camera at my disposal for quick needed shots or just to have. This would keep BB in the same league as some of the Android phone's cameras and is often an overlooked feature by developers for some reason.
I know, I know. Before you all tell me that I'm wrong here, there's got to be other 9530, 9550 owners out there that love it as much as I do. I think it's a great feature and honestly LOVE that I can hover or make sure I'm over the right choice before I click in. Maybe they can refine the SurePress a little to make it less buggy and make it as solid as us Storm owners want it to be...BADLY!!
I was hoping we could add to this list and maybe, just maybe some BB developers are creeping around on here and get some ideas from it.
